Economics is one of a number of human or social sciences whose aim is to investigate, understand and predict human behaviour. The central theme of economics is how societies go about raising the material standard of living or well-being of their members given a limited supply of resources.
This book is a Study Guide designed to help students meet the requirements of the WACE Economics ATAR Course Year 12 syllabus. It is aimed at assisting students in their preparation for tests and examinations in the ATAR Economics course for Units 3 and 4.
Essential core theory for each topic is covered clearly and in detail. Illustrations and worked examples are used extensively to assist students in their learning. Throughout each chapter, questions and exercises are integrated with theory to help students clarify and consolidate their understanding of new concepts.
